OMIA:002356-9823 : Conceptus elongation, IL1B2-related in Sus scrofa (pig)

Categories: Reproductive system phene

Links to MONDO diseases: No links.

Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown

Considered a defect: unknown

Species-specific description: Whyte et al. (2018): "CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing was used to knock out pig conceptus IL1B2 expression and the secretion of IL1B2 during the time of conceptus elongation. Trophoblast elongation occurred on day 14 in wild-type (IL1B2+/+) conceptuses but did not occur in ILB2-null (IL1B2-/-) conceptuses." (GMO)

Genetic engineering: Unknown
Have human generated variants been created, e.g. through genetic engineering and gene editing
